CHAPTER 1 Geometry, topology and analysis in the complex plane 1. A Review of Complex Numbers 1.1. Basic facts. Let z = ( x , y ) be a point on the plane R 2 , or, in other words, vectors on the plane. From Linear Algebra we know how to add vectors and multiply them by real-valued constants: z 1 + z 2 = ( x 1 , y 1 ) + ( x 2 , y 2 ) = ( x 1 + x 2 , y 1 + y 2 ) , az = ( ax , ay ) , a R . We are going to call these vectors complex numbers , and name the coordinates x and y the real and imaginary part of z : x = Re z , y = Im z . The question: why do we want these new names for the familiar objects? Answer: because we introduce a new operation – multiplication. D efinition 1.1. Define the product of two complex numbers z 1 = ( x 1 , y 1 ), z 2 = ( x 2 , y 2 ) as follows: z 1 z 2 = ( x 1 x 2 - y 1 y 2 , x 1 y 2 + y 1 x 2 ) . Note that z 1 z 2 = z 2 z 1 and z 1 ( z 2 + z 3 ) = z 1 z 2 + z 1 z 3 ! Notation for the set of all complex numbers: C . When we view them as points on the plane, we call it the Argand plane . Consider the product of two equal numbers z 1 = z 2 = (0 , 1): (0 , 1) 2 = ( - 1 , 0) . So, if we denote i = (0 , 1) and x = ( x , 0), then we have the familiar identity i 2 = - 1. Now, using the same notation we can use another, more standard way of writing the complex numbers: z = ( x , y ) = x (1 , 0) + y (0 , 1) = x + iy . This is called the canonical, or standard form of complex numbers. We are going to use this form from now on. It is more convenient for remembering how to multiply complex numbers. The inverse number z - 1 = 1 z is defined to be the complex number such that zz - 1 = 1. It is easy to check that z - 1 = x - iy x 2 + y 2 = x x 2 + y 2 - i y x 2 + y 2 .
